Community Tasting Note

  • ikkaariainen wrote: 93 points

    October 14, 2016 - Traded for this years ago from fellow CT'er BillyT (see his note below). A really nice and still surprisingly youthful and spicy Sonoma syrah which paired very well with duck. A good QPR wine at the average CT cost and still big enough to really benefit from at least an hour in the decanter. Several more years of life left with appropriate cellaring. Dark inky purple, still a big wine but now soft, tannins and acid present but well integrated, good mouth feel and full bodied with a long pleasant aftertaste. Big floral rich nose with dark fruit, blackberry, violet and a note of eucalyptus on the end. Flavor profile more muted and balanced with more of a cedar note then an oaky note present and dark fruit, blackberry and dark cherry up front and more of a spicy finish with black pepper, garrigue, grilled meat and tobacco on a long lingering finish. Definitely recommend this wine.
